The Presidential Office respects the legislature’s resolutions, and the nation must demonstrate its firm determination to boost its self-defense capability, so other nations would come to its help, which is why the government has been promoting indigenous development of the defense industry and pragmatic diplomacy, Chang added.
One of the KMT resolutions states that the government should work to persuade the US government, based on its Taiwan Relations Act (TRA), to help Taiwan defend itself against China’s threat through diplomatic, economic or security means, once Beijing makes an overt move that would obviously endanger Taiwanese security and socio-economic institutions.
The other resolution states that the focus of the government’s diplomatic efforts with the US should be to work toward the resumption of formal diplomatic ties with Washington.
